Meanwhile, the 04 The Win-2004 also climbed to 3-0 with a 72-59 victory over the CrossFit Subtero-2006. Batch 2004 began pulling away in the third canto as they turned a slim four-point lead, 38-34, into a 13-point cushion, 58-45, heading to the last stanza. Batch 2004 then held on down the stretch to pull off the win.
